Looking for a healthy breakfast but have a chocolate sweet tooth? Then this Reese’s peanut butter overnight oats will hit the mark without breaking your diet leaving you full till lunch. In fact, when working in Dublin, this was my breakfast before work most days.
Inspired by my love of chocolate and based on recommendations to include peanut butter in my morning porridge, this recipe emerged. You can simply add more or less of each ingredient depending on your preferences as well as add other ingredients of your choosing. I like to add chia seeds and occasionally flaxseeds. This recipe will surely make breakfast something you’ll be looking forward to.
Eat it hot or cold, this will give your friends and coworkers breakfast envy.
I recommend reusing a small jar to store your oats, making it easier to bring with you on your travels and mix the ingredients, because fewer dishes are always better.
- ½ cup of oats
- ¾ cup of milk
- 1 tbsp of honey or agave
- 2 tbsp of peanut butter
- 1 and ½ tsp of cocoa powder
- Mix the oats and cocoa powder in a jar by giving it a good shake with the lid on, of course.
- Then add the peanut butter, milk, and honey. You can add more milk if you like runnier porridge or less if you like it thicker. You can add more honey or less based on your sweetness preference.
- Shake to mix in the jar. This will also help with ensuring that the peanut butter incorporates into the mix. Then leave in the fridge overnight.
- In the morning, simply dig into your oatmeal if you like it cold.
- If you like it hot, simply heat it up in a microwave-safe bowl for 2:30-3:00 minutes on medium power. Or in a pan on the stove.
- Serve as is or add your favorite toppings and enjoy this chocolatey, protein-packed breakfast.
